I can't stand watching Malkin and Letang get away with murder on a daily basis. The amount of cheap shots/ interference is just insane. So much is let go when it comes to those two. Fuck the Pens. But, knew this would be a tight series, Pens are no joke at all.

This. The Caps have paid their dues and suffered painful defeats in recent years especially at the hands of the Rangers. So the one year they don't have to go through the Rangers, let them have their Cup. Definitely don't want the fucking dirty Pens to win it. Although I wouldn't mind seeing Dallas win it either.

I agree and you can see he left his feet and it was an elbow to the head and I"m guessing 2 games.

Morphinity
05-03-2016, 09:58 AM
Call me crazy, I thought Letang's hit was fine in the sense that it didn't target the head and it wasn't overly vicious. Letang first makes contact with Johansson's chest. Johansson is leaning kind of forward, so his head gets caught by Letang's shoulder, but I don't think that makes it the PPOC.

It may have been interference, which was called on the play. Bob McKenzie said there were .63 seconds between Johansson's pass and Letang's hit.

Pete
05-03-2016, 10:28 AM
It was blind side. He was already engaged with other players.

Vodka Drunkenski

Plus he left his feet, it was definitely a dirty play IMO

Morphinity
05-03-2016, 11:13 AM
His skates didn't leave the ice prior to the hit being laid on him, which is the point of the rule. The skates leaving the ice afterwards is pure physics.

So there's that. One game is my guess.

BrooklynBoy89
05-03-2016, 11:49 AM
Johansson not practicing today.. Being re-evaluated tomorrow. Watched this play numerous times, he connects with the body and head simultaneously. The player is reaching, looking the other way, and doesn't have the puck. It's a hit that doesn't need to be made, much like Orpiks. Letang is as dirty as they come, can't stand him. I'm sure he won't get more than a game, but he should.

Future
05-03-2016, 12:54 PM
He should still be suspended for trying to take Stalberg's head off.

Ray, he totally came up on him. The skates leaving the ice were simultaneous. He got low, and lifted up. He should get 2 games, but he won't. And the puck was off his stick for around a second.

Morphinity
05-03-2016, 01:58 PM
I mean, that's how you hit someone... He didn't launch himself at him like a missile though or jump into his head. It was a good body check, a little late.

We'll see what they suspend him for - hit to the head or interference. I'd be surprised if it was for hit to the head. From what I read on Twitter, there was a bit of debate within the NHL whether the head was the PPOC.

After seeing it from different angles, it's not clear one way or the other whether the head was ppoc, or if he left his feet. I can look at it 100 times and give you a different answer each time. I understand the league has to make a decision with definity, but I feel like if it weren't a Penguin their explanation wouldn't be the same.

It was late and the head was hit. Everything else, as you said, is up for interpretation.

It wasn't as bad as some people make it out to be (or as bad as they want it to be.) Letang is a cunt, but this hit got what it deserved given the situation and evidence at hand.

If you subscribe to the idea that 1 playoff game = 2 regular season games, he did get 2 games.

Besides, his last suspension was 5 years ago. Hard to believe that would be factored in at all.

05-04-2016, 12:30 AM
What sucks is his History should have been "Suspended 2 weeks ago for throat chopping Stalberg".. But the NHL let it slide, and now they let him off the hook here with a BS 1 game suspension, ONLY bc their hand was forced by the Orpik play. The guy has routinely showed maliciousness out there, whether he is called for it or not. Sick of this shit happening with the Pens. There comes a point where a player feels that he can take liberties and get away with it, that point has arrived for Letang, glad he got something, but he won't change his ways at all.

Greenday4537
05-04-2016, 05:20 PM

I think the Caps have 0 shot at coming back to take this.. The Pens are the REAL DEAL. People seem to keep underestimating them, or thinking they aren't as good as they are playing. Ever since they made their changes, they have been a freight train. It's no surprise the Islanders tanked to avoid them.

Not sure my math is 100% on this.. But I think they are like 37-17-5 since he became the coach. Including a crazy current run of winning like 22 of their last 26? Pretty damn good.

Caps will come back from 3-1 and take this

i think pens win game 5 on friday in the verizon center and caps fans throw shit on the ice.

Specifically for baiting someone to go five-hole.

Then a couple shots later, got destroyed five-hole.

Hard to feel bad for the Caps when they let the Pillsbury Kesselboy walk in unmolested like that.

Because they just ripped through the Rangers and Capitals with ease. They'll do the same to the Lightning. The best bet is that a Western team can snuff them out.

You can tell WAS just wasn't as mentally strong at PIT. They looked more nervous than PIT during all those 5 on 3s. They were playing scared to lose so you can see why this team continues to choke year after year.

Phil I think you're reading too much into their two series wins. Yeah they're fast, very balance scoring and decent goaltending. But they just took out one of the weakest teams in the playoffs and then a perennial choker. TBL can easily take PIT to Game 7. I can't see PIT taking out either of STL or SJS.

He played probably the best game of his entire career last night. Had he done that while he was here, he would have been worth the $4 mil. It's also no coincidence that he's playing his best hockey in probably 2 years on a line with Phil Kessel.

Truthfully they couldn't really afford him but that's definetly their fault because they handed out a lot of bad contracts. My issue with trading hagelin is the return which was essentially nothing
